Local Government

The attorneys of Russell, English, Scoma & Beneke, P.C. have a long history of representing local governmental bodies in North Central Illinois. We have established long standing relationships with many of our governmental clients, maintained with an emphasis on timely, responsive and authoritative advice and counsel. Today's public officials are faced with ever increasing duties and obligations, and we are proud of our tradition of providing those officials with the knowledge and guidance they need to assist them in the performance of their duties.

Among our clients are included villages, townships, road districts, libraries, fire districts, drainage districts and park districts.

From budgets and levies, preparation of ordinances and intergovernmental agreements, election and election contests, zoning, purchase and sale of equipment and real estate, to the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act, our attorneys have a significant depth of experience in representing local governments. Our attorneys are frequent lecturers and authors on topics of concern to our clients.
